"owners are instructed to contact the Sony Customer Information Services Center for further assistance at 1-866-703-7669." - Tell them you have a CCD (image sensor) failure. If their trouble shooting does not solve the problem (have your battery fully charged), you will have the opprotunity to have it repaired for $15 s/h. Have your CC# handy.

Tina, it sounds like you are having the same problem as everyone olse that own a t1. I had the same problem with the camera and then it just went blurry on me, the menu works and everything but you can't see the image, I'm trying to see if sony has a solution for this, because it's a really nice camera

A common problem is a finger print on the lens. If needed, clean the lens with a microfiber lens cloth. Commonly available with spectacle cleaning kit. Did you drop it? Are you actuating the shutter by "squeezing" the button and not pushing on it, moving camera around? Try using a shaky hand setting, often indicated with a hand icon and wavy lines, indicating movement.
One, the moon occupies a rather small portion of the night sky. Even fully zoomed in, the moon is going to be not much more than a bright spot in the sky.
Two, the camera is designed to assume that almost every scene is an average brightness. Given how much of the scene is a black sky, the camera will attempt to render the sky as average (what photographers call a "medium gray"). This will result in a picture with a gray sky and a featureless white blob for the moon.
If you think about it, the full moon is nothing more than a really big rock under a midday sun. Thus what you want is the same exposure as when taking a picture on a clear sunny day. Unfortunately the camera is going to be fooled by all that dark sky and try to compensate for it. What you really need is to be able to bypass the camera's light meter and set the proper exposure yourself. The C195, unlike more sophisticated cameras, doesn't allow you to do so. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.
First, try to delete the movie from the computer - just navigate to it and select it, and press the delete key. If that doesn't work, use the format function of the camera to reformat the memory card (obviously this should delete everything, including the problem one).
If reformatting causes the file numbering to restart from 0001 and this messes with your personal filing system, you may be able to take one picture, use your computer to change the name of it with the 'rename' function to the number you want to continue from, and then start taking pictures again. (Many cameras will notice the numbered file, and continue the numbering from there; however, I can't guarantee that yours will do this.)
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
The problem lies in you camera's CCD unit which is located on the back of the lens held on be 3 small screws it could also be a setting in the camera's menu try going into the menu and reseting the camera to default it works some times if that does not work than you need the ccd replaced pretty easy fix I fixed 1 with the same problem about two weeks ago for someone it happens I hope this helps you out.
There was a line of defective Sony sensors that went into a lot of cameras between 2004 and 2005. As far as I know the 5700 was the primary victim in the Nikon line but Nikon is offering to repair or replace the affected cameras regardless of warranty status.
